I'm particularly sensitive, and often I am hurt by things that others have just roll off. It's the making mountains out of molehills thing. Others think that I *make* them into mountains, but from where I exist (think like a shrunken Alice), even if they are just molehills, they *are* mountains to me. And just because my perspective is different to me, doesn't make it any less valid.

Others just don't get that. They don't get how I can be hurt by the same thing that they have no problem with. It does make me angry, but I try to remind myself that they are in a different position and are not sensitive. I tell myself to feel sorry for them because they can't feel things as intensely and thus may miss out on simple beauty at times. :)

But it still stinks when confronted with it as if it were a character flaw on your part or when people think you are "crazy". I'm sorry it happened to you.
